CAARC 45TH ANNUAL PICNIC VIDEO
Calling all CAARC members – What do you do with your Radio?
In honour of the 45th anniversary of the CAARC Annual Picnic, we are inviting hams to submit a short video clip or favorite pictures of their amateur radio activities. It could be their ham shack, their mobile radio setup, SDR, DFing equipment, HF equipment, antennas, moon bounce equipment, JOTA, repeaters, teletype, CFARS or what ever sparks your interest in ham radio.
Video clips should be at least 30 seconds and a maximum of 3 min. It should be in a digital format and you should have audio to explain your video. By submitting your video clip, or favorite pictures you are giving the club permission to use the material you have sent in. This will be used to create a montage of what ham radio means to us and we will have our video premiere at the Saturday night supper next picnic.
Please submit video clips to Sandy, VE6SND at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have noticed that there are a lot of members who have not paid their annual membership dues over the last couple of years. Please help keep your repeaters and club active by submitting your membership dues at this November meeting. You can also download the CAARC membership and renewal form under the “Site tools” tab and send your dues by snail mail to the listed address on the bottom of the form or bring it to the meeting. Your support helps keep your repeaters operating and your club active.
Thankyou from your executive
